Call for Colombia’s ’cocaine hippos’ to be culled

Scientists have warned that hippos that belonged to Pablo Escobar are taking over the marshlands of Colombia, and need to be culled. The so-called ’cocaine hippos’ were illegally imported to the country by Escobar. Scientists project that the rapidly breeding hippo population could surge to 1,500 by 2024. The hippos pose a threat to the natural wildlife since their urine and feces are toxic.

It was the lazy government that set them free to ravage the ecosystem in the first place. All the government wanted was to seize the money.

"Packed in dry ice, and shipped to your door, Colombia Steaks has what you're looking for. Top quality hippo steaks, roasts, and various grinds. Treat yourself, and your family, to a succulent (if somewhat gamey) hippo steak today!" Problem solved.

There are so many zoos, sanctuaries, and breeding programs in this world. It isn’t their fault that they were released there. Humans messed up and it’s our job to fix it without punishing them

No natural predators or dangerous environments explain why they multiply so rapidly. No chance they can be trapped and sent to zoos?
